Things to do at Kinver Edge Rock Houses review

Kinver Edge Rock Houses are maintained by the National Trust and are located near Stourbridge, West Midlands. The rock houses are a 15-minute walk away from Kinver Village.

The dramatic red sandstone houses are set on a high sandstone ridge with an Iron Age hill fort. Today you can visit the restored Holy Austin houses which show how life was lived in the rock until the 1960s. You can enjoy viewpoints over Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire.

Look out for some natural play areas in the woods with tree stumps or den building. There are three trails around the site. There is the 4-mile-long Rock House trail where you can discover two very different rock houses, one restored and another hidden in the trees.

There is also the 2-mile woodland walk and the 1.5-mile long Heathland trail which is an easy circular walk through a rare heathland habitat. There are plenty of opportunities to take in the views and spot wildlife along the way.
